Camera Obscura is planning a special issue titled Fabulous! The Diva
Issue. From actual goddesses to 21st century divinities in film,
television, and popular music, the figure of the diva has captivated,
inspired, and appalled. She (and, maybe, he?) is larger-than-life
and carries with her the cultural and psychic baggage of individuals,
communities, and nations. We are looking for essays (5,000-6,000
words) and shorter "appreciations" (500-1400 words) that consider the
intersection of film, television, or music divas with gender,
sexuality, race/ethnicity, and class.

Precision and Soul in Modernism
 
In 1922, Robert Musil wrote of a ³miscommunication between the intellect and
the soul.² ³We do not have too much intellect and too little soul², he
continued, ³but too little intellect in matters of the soul². This panel
focuses on the ways in which the intellect and the soul are made actively to
communicate in modernist texts in which the impersonal, the abstract, the
logical and the technological provide a means of accessing the poetic,
mystical, epiphanic and extraordinary aspects of the everyday real.
